Leki Softlite Anti-Shock Trekking PolesThe new 2012 Leki Makalu Ultralite Titanium Softlite Antishock Trekking Poles offer the best value for money in Leki's Ultralite Titanium range and delivers more than any other pole at this price. The indestructible rubber handle and super tough, high tensile 7075 aluminium shafts make this an incredibly durable pole which punches well above it's weight. A best seller in our Ambleside shop for good reason.
The Leki Softlite Anti shock is an adjustable pole using the Leki Super Lock System (SLS) which allows for easy adjustment of the length of the poles, with only fingertip pressure required to lock securely. The SLS is the strongest available locking mechanism on the market (as tested independently by the German safety standards agency the TUV).
The Soft Anti Shock (SAS) system is integrated into the middle shaft of the pole. The SAS uses a spring and elastomer combination developed alongside those used in the demading cycling and car industry and is considered as the most advanced ever used in trekking pole manufacture.
The positive angle grip positions the hand at an ergonomically correct angle for comfort. The durable carbide tips optimize grip even on hard, polished surfaces.
